5 Top-Performing Energy ETFs Over The Past Week

The energy sector has gained momentum lately with positive fundamentals building up in the space, pushing oil price higher. Notably, U.S. crude hit $58.03 per barrel, its highest price in six weeks.

The trade talks between the two world superpowers are expected to resume in early October and ease global slowdown concerns, which in turn will drive demand for oil. Bouts of stronger-than-expected data from China and stimulus package provided some relief to oil markets. Notably, China is the world's second-largest oil consumer and the largest importer. Further, Saudi Arabia’s new energy minister’s commitment to production cuts supported the oil rally.

Given the rebounding fundamentals, many energy ETFs have generated handsome returns over the past week. Below we have highlighted them:
